At the last Committee Meeting we said 'goodbye' to David Duckworth who after several years as a board member - with the last two as Chairman - decided it was 'time to move on and pursue other interests'.

Gordon Chisholm, West Country's Regional Manager, presented David with a card and a voucher as a thank you for all his hard work and commitment to Crimestoppers over the past years, and also read out a letter of thanks from Mark Hallas, Crimestoppers' CEO.

David thanked the other board members for their generous help and support and said "I believe that we have all done a great job together over the last two years in helping to keep our community safer. I am confident that West Country Crimestoppers will continue to go from strength to strength and I know you will give the same generous support to my successor - Peter Anderson."

Before stepping down, the tables were turned, with David having the pleasure of presenting Gordon Chisholm with his 10 year long service award and also his Crimestopper of the Month award from February.
